Robert Radecke Works for Orchestra - CD-Release


Last summer, between June 16th and 19th, 2015, the Biel Solothurn Symphony Orchestra and Kaspar have recorded a selection of orchestral works of the German Romantic composer Robert Radecke in Calvinhaus in Biel.
About the project

The CD will be released in March 2016 by the German label CPO.

On the occasion of the recordings there has been produced a trailer with interviews, videos, episodes on the history of repertoire, its rediscovery and its re-production, which will be subsequently used as a bonus track on the CD.
